Pete Davidson hit out at millennials Monday night when he berated students while performing at a university in Florida.
The “Saturday Night Live” star broke into an impromptu rant against millennials when students violated his no-cellphone rule during a welcome-back comedy show at the University of Central Florida.
“That’s what’s f—ed up. You were the one filming. That’s right, we’re embarrassing. That’s why the world is going to end in 25 years because you’re all f—ing r——d,” Davidson, 25, ranted at Monday’s show. “I meant it that way, idiots. You should f—ing grow up.”
“It says no phones. You’re just supposed to, just like, behave,” said Davidson. “I have to have my boy patrol you guys like you’re 5 years old? That’s f—ing embarrassing.”
“You should grow up,” he continued in the middle of his set. “Where’s the next generation? … Don’t you want your parents to be proud of you? … Now we’ll continue.”
It didn’t go over well with showgoers and many booed the comedian, while others voiced their frustrations on social media.
“Imagine going on a 5 minute … rant about how you hate millennials recording s–t and then tryna backtrack into making it a motivational speech 🥴 we ain’t even pay to see this s–t;;;; reLAX!” tweeted one show attendee, while another echoed the sentiment, calling the ordeal “a s— show.”
“it was a S–T SHOW! he went on a whole rant bcs a few ppl were recording and he started yelling about how we need to grow up and that we’re r-words and b—— and then he was like mad bcs no one was LAUGHING! u could feel the tension and how uncomfortable it was.”
In a statement to Fox News on Tuesday, the university called Davidson’s actions “disappointing” and said his use of the derogatory term was highly uncalled for.
“Mr. Davidson’s abusive language, particularly his use of a derogatory slur, is contrary to the University of Central Florida’s values of inclusion and respect for all,” read the statement. “It’s disappointing that his rant spoiled an event that was meant to welcome students back for the fall semester.”
